Patch 1.11 brings love for the G15

The Logitech G15 keyboard was the center of much Warcraft controversy after a player was banned from the game. His story was that they banned him for using a G15 keyboard. Blizzard said he was botting. Elune only knows.

In the latest patch, Blizzard has enabled funtionality of the G15 keyboard, specifically it’s LCD screen directly with the game.

This is the default view of the LCD screen during game play.

The LCD notifies you when you get whispers.

And if you are unlucky enough to be in the queue, it displays the status. I’ve seen that it also tells you if you have been outbid on the Auction House.

The G15 software that allows this functionality is Windows only. Mac users are out of luck until Logitech develops OS X software or unless users want to run WIndows XP on their Intel based Macs.

    Oooh, shiny!

    I like the extra buttons even more than the LCD. Can’t ever have enough buttons!

    This is making the urge to pick one of these up that much stronger. :(
